Ivey Gets Lucky To Keep $100K Hopes Alive

Chad_Holloway
Phil Ivey

David "Doc" Sands opened for 45,000 under the gun and cleared the field all the way around to the legendary Phil Ivey, who moved all in from the big blind for 352,000. Sands snap-called and Ivey discovered the bad news.

Showdown
Ivey: {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}
Sands: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}

Ivey was in bad shape with his best chance of winning beings an ace. There was none to be found on the {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}{2-Diamonds} flop, but there was one on the turn as the {A-Diamonds} spiked. Per usual, Ivey showed no emotion as the dealer burned and out out the {J-Hearts} on the river. With that, Ivey doubled to near the chip average.
